    Been 10 days. No biggies.

    But knowing him using the device not replying back really gets on my nerve. It has always been like that, he replied whenever he feels im slipping away. sometimes, i feel that, Actually we have never fallen in love for each.

    Definitely.....

    Now, before I get shouted down, I KNOW people are busy and don't often check their phones that often so I never expect an instant reply. I also don't get too worked up if someone doesn't respond one time because these things can be easily forgotten. But what DOES get to me is...

    It drives me crazy when I'm in a conversation

    and the other person just stops talking. More so when it's someone I just started talking to and they just disappear. With people I talk to a lot it bothers me less because I know I've done it occasionally lol.

    My last boyfriend was TERRIBLE at replying.

    He'd go a full week at times without every texting me back or trying to make contact with me in any way for that matter, yet he was constantly on every other social media. Yet if I went even an hour without texting him back it was like world war 3.
